Why does the Gepard A2 not have a EOTS in WG?

According to FAS(thanks Obama!) it had a "video auto-tracker".
West Poland can finally into non-radar AA!

He mean make SEAD immune the AAA. Considering 2K22 Tung. and Croatele are RCG in RL and not SEAD immune many times have been recommended to make SEAD immune all or at least some AAA such as PIVADS which does not have real radar only target distance meter.

Sure, just increase the price and drop the accuracy by 30% too and it'll be balanced.

Seeing as how Machbet has [RAD] despite visibly not having a radar on the vehicle....

Don't count on it.

One of the wishes I have for WG4 is that "turn off radar" button switches the AA weapon to "non-radar mode of firing" with less antiplane range, less acc, bigger aimtimes, etc. Something like that.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

Because machbet is connected to an external search radar via datalink, just like Hawks and Buks.
You could remove the radar stat, but it would end up having a lower Acc/range than a strop, because of ballistics and the fact it doesn't have EOTS.

That is something I could get behind so long as there are major trade offs and people can't just go tooling around with their Radar off all of the time.
My mouth is moving, but nothing relevant is coming out. Also I cannot guarantee that my research is perfect or even remotely accurate.

Well if they go tooling around with radar off all the time then they have to live with a much gimped aa piece. So there would be definite tradeoffs to going around with radar off.
